Gunshot killed unidentified man

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        FORT THOMAS — A gunshot wound to the head killed the man whose skeletal remains were found Saturday on the banks of the Ohio River in Fort Thomas, said Dr. Emily Craig, forensic anthropologist for the state medical examiner's office.

        His race and weight have not been determined, but Dr. Craig said the man was between 30 and 50 years old, between 6 feet and 6 feet, 4 inches tall, and had a 46-inch waist and 58-inch chest. He was wearing a two-piece suit — lightweight and dark — when he died.

        Dr. Craig said he had been dead at least five years, which she discerned from plant root growth into the remains and clothing worn by the man.

        This is the second time this month that Dr. Craig has examined skeletal remains in Northern Kentucky.

        The other remains are of a woman found by an inmate cleaning crew on Ky. 20 in Boone County. Boone County Sheriff Mike Helmig said Dr. Craig and other investigators are still working to identify those remains.

        Anyone with information in the Fort Thomas case can call Detective Mike Daly at 572-1231. For the Boone County case, call 334-2175.
